Federal Bureau Investigation


This one was caught by my SpamSentinel spam filter, and was too good not to post. I highlighted the stupid parts that would alert anyone who is thinking that this is a fraud, starting with the subject: Federal Bureau Investigation (the missing "of" really jumps out at you ). Translators must cost more than $296 (the amount they are trying to phish or steal). Why bother making an email that will actually fool people?

The bottom line: The author should be fired from being a Nigerian scammer.

ATTN: BENEFICIARY. (no real name)

This is to Officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an Investigated (investigation? )with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you are having an illegal transaction with Impostors claiming to be Prof. Charles C. Soludo of the Central Bank Of Nigeria, Mr. Patrick Aziza, none officials of Oceanic Bank, none officials of Zenith Bank and some impostors claiming to be the Federal Bureau Of Investigation agents. During our Investigation, it came to our notice that the reason why you have not received your payment is because you have not fulfilled your Financial Obligation given to you in respect of your Contract/Inheritance Payment.

So therefore, we have contacted the Federal Ministry Of Finance (what the hell is this?
